The Philadelphia Eagles issued their first official injury report on Wednesday in advance of the NFC Championship Game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Note that this report is an estimation because the team held a walkthrough in lieu of a normal practice.

Two players were listed under LIMITED PARTICIPATION: Avonte Maddox and Lane Johnson.

Good news: Maddox is expected to participate in practice on Thursday for the first time since suffering a toe injury on Christmas Eve. It remains to be seen how the Eagles will handle the secondary with Maddox potentially returning. C.J. Gardner-Johnson has filled in well as the nickel cornerback and Reed Blankenship has done some nice things at safety.

If Maddox plays, the Eagles will incredibly have all 22 of their starters in the lineup for Sunday’s game. That’s a really nice luxury to have so late in the season.

Johnson is playing through a groin injury, as we all know, so the Eagles are managing him to get him to game day.

A.J. Brown is notably NOT listed on the injury report at all despite getting nicked up in the Divisional Round.

Jalen Hurts once again dodged making the injury report. When asked about his shoulder, he said: “I’ve felt better. But it doesn’t really matter. Gotta get it done.”

Four 49ers players missed Wednesday’s practice: Jimmy Garoppolo, Christian McCaffrey, Elijah Mitchell, and Trent Williams.

Jimmy G is not playing; Brock Purdy will start.

McCaffrey and Mitchell are expected to be able to play but they are clearly not quite at 100%.

Williams was resting.

Three players were limited: Charles Omenihu, Deebo Samuel, and Ambry Thomas.

Assuming he’s healthy enough, Omenihu is expected to be able to play despite being arrested on “suspicion of misdemeanor domestic violence.” He ranks second on the team in sacks.

49ers reporters noted that Deebo was moving well in warmups. He’s probably fine.

Thomas is a backup corner/special teams contributor.
